|The Belmont leather rucksack by sustainable brand Abel, £250|
It has to be made by a responsible brand, be a versatile colour (and style) and look amazing. But I can't afford anything over £80, so the beauty above is ruled out, sadly. These are what I've found so far
1.Brave backpack by Matt + Nat, £80
2. Leather gym bag by Pieces, £60 (was £120)
Maybe this isn't as much of a lasting style but I like the idea of an old school gym bag fashioned out of high-quality leather. Pieces comes under the Bestseller brand umbrella which means its got plenty of sustainable practices, like monitoring work conditions and the chemical processes used to make its products. But then again the bag is made of leather...
This may be nothing like the other bags in the post, but I like it all the same. And money from each Stone + Cloth purchase goes towards providing scholarships to underprivileged children. Just not sure if its too casual, as I already have a big rucksack that I'm in love with and I'm looking for something smaller that I can pair with more formal outfits
What other sustainable bag brands are there? I need help
